Capri Tour

Capri Tour


We will start our Capri tour from Marina Grande Sea Port  where we will board a bus to Anacapri. From here we will take the chairlift to the summit of Monte Solaro, where you can enjoy the most spectacular views of the Bay of Naples.

From there we will descend the slope by by chairlift. If we decide to walk (estimated 30 minutes), we will take a moment to visit the hermitage of Cetrella.

At Anacapri we have choice between two distinctive sights.

The baroque church of St. Michael noted for for it’s marvelous XVII century hand painted ceramic tile floors. Every inch of the church’s floor is covered with. grand scene depicting the expulsion of Adam and Eve from the Garden of Eden. A modest fee is required for entry.

Your other choice is the Villa San Michele, a house museum created by the 19th century Swedish writer and physician Axel Muthe, which boasts one of the island’s most panoramic views.

Afterwards we will take back a bus to Capri and stroll down the Via Camerelle, famous for its luxury shops and designer fashion boutiques which line the street. When you’ve had your fill of window shopping, continue along the Via Tragara until reaching the breathtaking scenic overlook facing the world-famous Faraglioni rock formations. After taking in their splendor. turn around and descend to the port by Funicular Train, then back to the mainland via hydrofoil.

Tour length: 7 ore

If you are staying in Sorrento or Naples and want to organize a Capri day trip, you can take the ferryboat to go to the island.

Another option is a private boat that take you to and from the island, which I can arrange. This allows you to enjoy a relaxed and flexible trip to island, visit the renowned Blue Grotto and swim in the waters of Mediterranean Sea.

I can also arrange trips to Capri from Rome.

Pisa and San Miniato Tour with Truffle Hunting

Pisa and San Miniato Tour with Truffle Hunting

 Pisa and San Miniato Tour with Truffle hunting  will allow you to discover  the most impressive part of Tuscany.

The first stop will  be in Pisa that  is a small city and the most important sights are concentrated in the famous Piazza dei Miracoli.

The square is the obvious starting point for a visit to Pisa. You can spend  an hour exploring the architectural wonders of the piazza, which is one of Italy’s most impressive squares. The leaning tower is  a world famous attraction and you will see a lot of people taking pictures of themselves “trying” to push it straight!

The tower started to sink during its construction (12th century) that took about 200 years.

Next to it the Cathedral of Santa Maria Assunta with its Baptistery  that is the largest building of the religious complex on this square. Its construction started in 1063 and almost a hundred years later it was consecrated. The cathedral houses  the city patron’s relics, Saint Ranieri.

The white marble Baptistery was founded in 1152 and due to its construction on the same unstable soil as the Tower, it is also leaning slightly.

After touring the city, we will head to San Miniato.

San Miniato is a beautiful medieval city. The tour starts in Piazza del Prato del Duomo where you will find the most important buildings. On the top of the square  there is the famous Frederick II Tower from where you can enjoy a great panorama over the city and the valley.Another   important highlight is the concave colored façade of the Episcopal Seminary in Piazza della Repubblica.

San Miniato is worldwide known for its Truffle Festival every year in November.

That’s is the reason why you will take part in a once-in-a- lifetime experience: truffle hunting. 

You will meet a professional truffle hunter with his dog and with them  you will start your truffle hunting through the woods.

He will explain to you  the different species of truffles and share with you the secrets of the hunting.

The tour will end with a local meal prepared with the truffles you found!

What is Papal audience?

Papal audience also called the General Audience  is when the Holy Father addresses the crowd, usually in different languages in Saint Peter’s square

It’s not a mass but the Pope gives a themed speech, followed by prayers, a homily, and some singing.

At the end of the ceremony, the Pope will bless religious articles. If you have arrived in Rome with a rosary or bible or other object that you want blessed, bring it with you.

Or, you can buy these objects in many places in Rome, especially around the Vatican, and certainly inside the many gift shops you will find throughout the Vatican.

The whole audience lasts around 1.5 hours, so it should end  by around 11 a.m..

The General Audience is held (nearly) every Wednesday at 9h30 , when the Pope is in Rome.

Most of the time, the Papal Audience is held in Saint Peter’s Square, which can accommodate around 80,000 people.

During the cold winter months, , or if it’s raining hard , then the General Audience will be in Paul VI Audience Hall, which is to the left of Saint Peter’s Basilica. This space can only accommodate around 6000 people.

If the Pope is in Rome, but on summer holiday, there will not be any Papal Audiences at the Vatican. It can be in July or August.

Other chances to see the Pope in Rome 

The other opportunity to see the Pope is on a Sunday at 12 noon when he is in Rome. 

He will appear from the window of his apartment where he gives a short speech followed by the Angelus and ending with a blessing. 

He may also greet the crowds in various languages and the whole event usually lasts around 15-20mins. 

He will impart the Apostolic Blessing at the end of the prayer.
